Why is it so many folks simply don't "get" Graillot wines? It's a thing. I for one, adore them, and have gleefully noted these wines in many other winemakers' cellars (regardless of country). They are a rock-solid, benchmark Northern Rhone syrah to my mind. This bottle was lovely, showed vibrant fruit in a lithe frame with a pleasantly earthy, slightly bitter finish. I love pairing Graillot Crozes with black bean burritos (often with grilled chicken; tonight with flank steak). Sad to see the last of my Graillot vertical disappear, but I regret nothing. Need to reconstitute my Graillot library!
Tres pur, doté d'un fruit luxuriant, étincelant, vibrant, le nez est vraiment magique, floral sur la violette, poivré, frais. La bouche est moins impressionnante, mais de belle facture, c'est riche, fin, moyennement corsé, avec une belle acidité luminescente. Quel relief, quel éclat. Dommage que le vin soit un peu court en bouche.
